Ubuntu Touch Image #119 Comes With Bug-Fixes And Mir Related Fixes

Canonical has been working a lot at Ubuntu Touch in the last couple of months. Lately, they have fixed some hud crashes, have patched Mir to be compatible with Nexus 10′s hardware architecture, fixed some Network Manager issues, added support for Unknown calls and SMS messages and many others. A while ago, Mark Shuttleworth has announced that Canonical has signed with their first mobile phone manufacturer, (which most probably is Meizu) and that they are in strong talks with 4 others.

For now, Ubuntu Touch is officially supported only on the Google Nexus smartphones and tablets. Despite the fact that the first stable version of Ubuntu Touch, based on Ubuntu 13.10, has been officially optimized to work on LG Nexus 4, it has been patched to  work on all the existing Google Nexus devices: LG Nexus 4, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10, except Nexus 5.
